Writing about Rob Malda can Lead to Trouble

[ #893 ]

I finished the editable draft, cleaned up the markup, verified all the links, transformed the raw XML into HTML and eyeballed the figures. Everything looked great. I packaged everything up, and send it off to my editor.

A couple of minutes later, my e-mail client started downloading a couple of megs of mail. Maybe my uncle had sent another MPEG of the World's Worst Olympic Athletes Getting Hit in the Groin (When Parallel Bars Attack).

It was the book. Rejected by e-mail filters with the odd message: Message refused because 550 5.7.1 pornographic
  email rejected.

It's true that I worked for EDC (corporate motto: Pants are Optional), and once, a long long time ago, my mother took a picture of me in the bath (I was 4?), but really, the worst thing in the book is a screenshot of my custom color scheme (#339999, #993399, #999933, #000000, #FF0000, #00FF00, #0000FF) with the Aqua theme in Mozilla.

It's bad, and no one under 17 should be exposed to it, but it's poor style, which isn't immoral yet anywhere except California.
